Manager Peter Ziebert on Ria

I met Ria following a happenstance meeting with her Mother on an airplane en route to Mumbai. As the only child of high-achieving, self-made parents, Ria displays poise. maturity, confidence and a strong work ethic indicative of such upbringing. While she is charming and joyful in person, her acting talents stretch her into other personas, which she performs effortlessly - as is the case with her dark portrayal of the story's protagonist in her recent feature film, Three Legged Horse. The future is very bright for this young performer, there seem to be no limits to what she can achieve.
